I'm one week into my DPhil lockdown and insanity is starting to set in. I haven't left the house for days except an emergency taxi ride to WholeFoods for pesto and tapenade. I'm sleep-deprived from nightly spiderwars (the perils of living in any house more than a century old); I've had to decamp to the guest bedroom and give all my best clothes over to the disgusting arachnids. I am now wearing John Rocha boiled wool shorts everyday, watching documentaries about the Amish over breakfast and staying up until midnight worrying about the spin-density matrix. My only joy left is late-night online shopping. And so I present to you my current lust-list from the AW collections rolling into my inbox on a daily basis.
1. Obviously Raf. I need to buy up as much as I can of this collection I love to get me through the SS dry season. From head to toe, I would like it all please. From the Raf Simons mainline: the knitted, structured hat as well as the degradé sweatshirts (another, yes) and t-shirts. From the Raf 1995 line: the hairy t-shirt and the fingerless gloves.
2. The bomber jacket. Either in khaki suede by A.Sauvage or a blue "blouson" in technical fabrics by Sacai.
3. Rick Owens. STAT. Leather high tops and some drop-crotch shorts please (I've almost worn the John Rochas out).
4. A leather-fronted Ann Demeulemeester backpack. I have no idea how I made it to the library without this before.
P.S. The one upside to never leaving the house: the payments are building up in my bank account so quickly I might actually be able to afford some of this stuff.
